The most complex piece of engineering known to man…

22 Feb

…according to Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, is not Linux, not Solaris, and not even our cars. He posted it as a reply in a mailing list.

He said it’s us. Yes, all of us.  I believe in what he said “natural selection did it without even thinking.” Well, if you’re a religious conservative, maybe you can say something like “God engineered us this way.” However you look at it, we humans, with our intelligence, and all our nerve connections, cells, DNA, etc. are trully one of a kind engineering piece.

Linus discussed more though. Like the significance of trial and error in programming (kinda like natural selection). For those interested you can read the entire thing here.
